Dear BIOMCH-L Readers,

Our laboratory has just received a donation of CAN$5,500.00
(US$4,300.00) to be put towards an EMG system. From what I understand
about the pricing of "commercial systems", I doubt very much if this
amount would be enough to buy more than one or two channels.

I have the details for an interesting system which I could arrange to
have custom-built for our laboratory (8 channels = approx. CAN$4,000).

I do have a couple of questions for interested readers:

1. Are there any good-quality, inexpensive EMG systems available
commercially that would fit our budget (we d like at least 4-channels)?

2. If you were to have a system custom-built (or have done so
recently), what features would you consider to be essential?

If I receive any responses, I will post a synopsis.

Thank you,

Drew Smith, PhD
